All I can say is... wait, there is an important announcement:

"Attention! Attention!

"The Thought Police Auxillary Committee on Voluntary Self Compliance will have an important meeting in the Hall of Freedom tongiht at 8:00, attendance is compulsory!

"Democratic Citizen Compliance Enforcement Squad practice will follow the meeting at the Peace and Mercy Sports arena located behind the bulk detention processing facility near the rail station. All citizens over the age of 12 are required to participate. There will be no exceptions, it is a lawful requirement!"
... now where was I...? It doesn't matter... yep, I despair.

The lynch mob forms to the right, join early, but watch your step (if you catch my meaning)!

Java plugins are often disabled by Firefox since there are known security flaws

Check aboutlugins

See what it says about java..

Note that after a lengthy discussion we have altered (and slightly softened the wording) of the LQ Rules. Specifically:

Do not post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-orientated, hateful, threatening, hostile or insulting.
While discussing obviously illegal activity will still not be allowed at LQ, we realize that the previous wording of the rule including the "violating law" bit was both confusing (which "laws") and being interpreted in the most strict sense by some. Anything that puts LQ in danger or in any way attacks another member will still be dealt with swiftly. If any member has any additional questions, comments or concerns please feel free to start a thread in LQS&F.

I'm new here and in fact I signed up just to ask this question on this thread. I know this is an old thread but i noticed that while a discussion of rules and liability was going on, the OP's question was left unanswered. Since the wording of the rules has been softened to make this no longer an issue, I was wondering if someone wouldn't mind sharing the information the OP requested now. Thank you.

using jdk was answered

enable it in " about : config "
and make sure that the plugin is in the plugins folder


there are WAY BETTER OPTIONS for changing your location country
-- VPN --

and playing YouTube vids through TOR is a ROYAL pain in the rear end , and the vids are ALMOST watchable

Alternatively, why not just connect via a free proxy?
That way TOR bandwidth isn't wasted on cat videos.
